Manually spawned asteroids (from F10 menu) always contain the same ores

hobobot shared this bug 21 months ago
Reported – Awaiting fix

Repost of an old bug that Keen marked as "outdated" even though they moved it to "considered"


All procedural asteroids spawned from the F10 menu with random and manually entered seeds and with varying sizes have ice and nickel, but never any other ore type.


The root cause is due to the asteroid generator function using a seed based on XYZ position. However, when using the F10 menu, the XYZ position is always (0,0,0) which causes the ores to always be the same. I know this because I wrote a torch plugin to fix it. Just, someone, PLEASE tell filcon. He could fix this in 5 seconds.

Hi Keen,

It's been longer than usual since a hotfix. This bug is super easy to fix, can you ping fil or someone about it? I would ask on discord but pinging devs is discouraged
